This HOT weather makes me grouchy!
It's a good thing it's the weekend......
I'll repent and listen to conference and pray for cooler weather.
In the meantime......
Happy Weekend, Y'all!

We're trying to get a jump start on our holiday baking.......

Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it.

From a distance, each looks like every other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing.

Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him. This alone is amazing.

If nearby and listening, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to her halter is a small bell. It lets her blind friend know where she is, so he can follow her.

As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see how she is always checking on him, and that he will listen for her bell and then slowly walk to where she is, trusting that she will not lead him astray. When she returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, she stops occasionally and looks back, making sure her friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell.

Like the owners of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.

Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others see.

We went Visiting Teaching tonight

~I was the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell~

of these two ladies (and Becky too) but I didn't have a picture of her

My life will never be the same since the three of you have touched it!
(and that's a good thing)

New addition to our home........

In an effort to save energy and keep our home cooler we added french doors between our breakfast room and our dining room.
We don't use our dining room or game room very often, but we were running a second A/C on that side of the house to keep the whole house cooler~
then one day....all the sudden the idea came......
block off that side of the house, so the french doors were installed.

I kind of like the look and what it added to our living room~

and the best part of all...........
We saved $89.00 on our electricity bill!~
Yep, that's right.....our bill went DOWN $89.00 during the hottest months of the year! Those doors will pay for themselves in just a couple of months.
I can't wait to decorate them for Christmas with pretty wreaths.....
and when the weather cools down we can open them up again...but until then, the dining room remains above 90 degrees, while the rest of the house is cool!
